"Such a waste of talent. He chose money over power, in this town a mistake nearly everyone makes. Money is the McMansion in Sarasota that starts falling apart after ten years, power is the old stone building that stands for centuries. I can not respect someone who does not see the difference."

House of Cards is in één keer beschikbaar gemaakt op Netflix. De regels voor spoilers zijn wat mij betreft dus iets anders dan normaal. Het lijkt me het prettigst om de spoiler-tag te gebruiken voor alle afleveringen behalve aflevering 1. Boven de spoiler schrijf je om welke aflevering het gaat.
